Greensburg, IN—Starting January 29, DCMH will be enforcing Visitor Restrictions due to a high level of concern for the health of patients and staff.
- No visitors under the age of 18 are allowed in the hospital unless they are a patient or parent of a patient (exceptions need to be cleared with the nursing supervisor or charge nurse).
- Any visitors with fever, cough, or diarrhea should stay home.
- Anyone coming into the hospital with flu or cold symptoms will be required to wear a mask.
- Visitors and patients should cover their cough (cough or sneeze into your sleeve).
- Visitors will be required to wear personal protective equipment such as gown, gloves, and a mask if visiting a patient in isolation.
- Visitors and patients should wash their hands frequently with soap and water or use hand sanitizer.
- Hand sanitizer is the preferred method unless otherwise indicated (look for a sign near the patient’s door).
- Hand hygiene should be done before and after patient contact.
Flu prevention stations
Visitors and patients should take notice of the flu prevention stations that have been placed throughout the hospital. The stations include personal protective equipment, such as hand sanitizer and face masks, to help keep you safe. In the rare circumstances a visitor with influenza-like illness is permitted into the hospital, they will be asked to follow these rules: Wear a mask at all times while in the hospital, go directly to the patient’s room, and leave the hospital when the visit is complete.
